RStyga: Ugly design... Fortunately, K-1 follows K-7/5/3's design lines.

He might be referring to me? :-)

Don't let it concern you.

Cheers

mmrezaie: "It's worth noting though that mirror and shutter-induced shock can introduce some softness at longer focal lengths and slower shutter speeds when pairing the D750 with Nikon's 'VR' lenses."

What does this mean? Is there a review or study of this phenomenon somewhere?

Or, you can shoot in "Mirror Up" mode, such as when using Pixel Shift.

Dianoda: I know it was mentioned in the $1200-2000 round-up, but with respect to image quality, build, features, etc., the Pentax K-1 fits right in with this group, and seems to be a much better value than the D750 (at least for anyone who can make do with Pentax glass).

Why would you close out your DPReview gallery?
I'm a bit concerned about my gallery because I put a lot of personal effort into my gallery and I can't back it up at home. Different times I try to get DPR's attention about the gallery system shortfalls and never got an acknowledgement.

Your very nice group of DPR challenge photos remain. I like the way you add personal descriptive notes to your photos. You seem to prefer 100mm f2.8 prime and 70-200 f2.8. Pentax has the weatherproof DFA 100 mm f2.8 and the FA* 70-200 mm f2.8 and the glass is equal or better for both aps-c or ff. What do you mean by "make do with Pentax glass"? Have you used Pentax lens and had a bad experience or comparison?

I prefer the Pentax K-S2 body style, but like the function upgrades from the predecessor Pentax K-50 to the Pentax K-70.

Zvonimir Tosic: Incredibly ugly metamorph of a camera, ugly even when considering Marc Newson's unfortunate excursion into the Pentax land. This new camera looks like a cut/copy/paste mishmash of all the models in the last 5 years.
Is this mutilation so necessary, when the user reports never ceased to praise the K5II design? Why not stick to one proven design and change the parts inside? Leica does it, even Nikon and Canon with their top bodies. So one can look at it and say, "Ah, it's a proven Pentax DSLR", and not confuse it with a latest cheapo Sony or whatever.
Do human hands and anatomy change every season so radically, or the marketing manager has run out of ideas how to sell a new model?

The Pentax K-1 is a beautiful continuation of the manly Pentax style used in the K-5 design, and others.

I think the previous K-50 and its replacement, this Pentax K-70, body design is to market compete with the rounded corners of Canons and most Nikons. With all those rounded gobs of plastic styles of camera out there, somebody must like them.

Jesaja: Hey Sigma and Tamron, come back to K mount battle field.

The only lens Pentax doesn't cover for me is a good, cheap 150-600 mm zoom, which is a second choice.
I still have an eye open for my first choice, a cheaper used Pentax 560 mm HD WR prime.

sportyaccordy: Jesus Christ. 688g. Would it kill Pentax to make a crop camera that doesn't weigh a lb and a half? I couldn't care less about weather resistance.

I'm sorry you have a physical disability which forces you to use an inferior but lighter Sony plastic product. However, some Sony optics can't be too bad, so enjoy.

Jurre van Wouw: If only it had an EFCS... I'm not buying anything crippled by shutter shock!

You're kidding! Right?
After looking at your gallery, you're worried about shutter shock? :-)
If you'r concerned about long exposure times, you can also program to shoot with the mirror up.

mwlife: With these specs it will be interesting to see what the K3 II successor looks like.

Yes, That's what I'm waiting for! I like to do BIF and other long telephotos.
I intended to skip a model before updating my 16 MP Pentax K-5. The FF K-1 is one sweetheart of a camera, but there's no MP increase using APS-C lens in crop mode. Oh! What a hard choice. :-) ; because the expected APS-C Pentax K-3 replacement should have more APS-C MP's for cropping B.I.F.(birds in flight). PLUS the new ultra-fast focusing system will be great for BIF photos.

GraySaint: Replacement for K-S2?

Replacement for Pentax K-50

On article Pentax K-1 Pixel Shift Resolution: Updated Field Test (209 comments in total)

All current production Pentax cameras and lens are WR or AW (weather resistant).
This includes the Pentax K-1camera and the lens used in this report.

"The weather conditions were, well, pretty miserable. My fiancé and I experienced moderate rain throughout most of the day which definitely put a damper (literally) on the trip." Now we need WR photographers. :-)

And in the meantime, Pentax probably suffered severe marketing damage.

22codfish: The Pentax K-S2 is now listed as $499.00
At that price, it will offer more and out-perform all the other brands; but that camera is not necessary to be included because the K-50 is still listed for sale.

The Pentax K-50 is listed as $306.00, not discontinued, pending the official announcement of the Pentax K-70, which will replace the Pentax K-50.

There should be a Pentax camera in this group.

You're correct, Richard B.
I just was on line (7pm May20/16) Ricoh/ Pentax.com, the MSRP for the Pentax K-S2 is $530.00, even though it is retailing for $499.
However, Pentax.com still has the Pentax K-50 and the Pentax -S1 both msrp printed as $350.00
There should still be a Pentax in this group.

thegreat26: I am a Pentaxian but from what I see the D810 is still the winner....
Not with pixel shift enabled.
Can we please have the settings used?
Lens, a a simulation on or off?

Since both cameras have the same sensor, would the difference without the pixel-shift working be caused be the lens used with each camera?

What would be appreciated from camera equipment manufacturers is gear having quick access panels so tiny micro motors could easily be replaced.
